Slope Rebels was set up by a select group of members who are passionate about radio control soaring. Sloping makes up the largest part of our flying, along with flat field and electric flight and we are based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. All the places we fly are public, and we have no field to rent and therefore there is no fee for joining the Slope Rebels. Membership is based on mutual respect and a shared passion for flying.
We encourage fliers with similar views to share their experiences and love of anything that flies.

Toko Maiden: SW Slipper Face

The Toko is built by Craig Baker from Cloudbase Composites. You can see their Blog at
Craig rushed the build so that we could take the plane to Hermanus..... But that was to be a non event as the wind never blew in our favour!
So finally we have the opportunity to get some wind over her wings!

Sean doing the last checks before the maiden flight.

Double check!

And away she goes!

The sky was a bit hazy, but the colour scheme stands out well!
